  • Disassemble No. 141 Geared Threader

    I'm attempting to repair a Ridgid 141 geared threader. Does anyone know how the pinion shaft assembly is removed from the gear case? It appears it may be threaded into the case. Right or left hand thread? Torque is not being transmitted to the workholder. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks, Spencer

    I'd make a gambit that part # 4 - "Pinion Shaft Retaining Collar"
    is threaded, based on the fact that it has two opposing flat surfaces likely made for a crescent wrench to turn.
    Just a guess.

      #17 nylon plug AND #18 set screw, appear to have something with the removal as at the bottom of the page under the listings of parts, it says
      Ref. No. 17) Nylon Plug should be replaced anytime Pinion Shaft Assembly (Ref. No. 1) is removed from Gear Case.

        Thanks for the suggestions. Part #4 does unthread from part #8. Part #17 & #18(set screw & nylon plug) are removed. Item #8 is the question. Very tight. Thanks again, Spencer

          After the screw and plug are removed, the shaft (8) should just unscrew. It may be tight yes, a spud wrench works well here, put it across two of the pins and on the othher sideof the shaft. Keep the pinion shaft inside while this is being done. This will keep the integrity of the pinion sleeve. You may have to put the gear case in a vise to accomplish this. Good luck. If it doesnt work, call the guys in tech service @800 519 3456

            Jeff, I built a wrench to fit the three pins. It was very tight. Drive shaft had broken and the pieces wedged inside the pinion sleeve. It all disassembled now. Thank you for the good directions. Mark
